C-Quarters Youth Fishing Tournament
July 17, 2021 @ 12:00 am
Open to all kids 16 years and younger! In 2019, over 200 kids fished the tournament, with some traveling as far away as Louisiana. Last year’s event was canceled due to COVID-19. This year we expect even more to join the fun and fishing activities. Friday evening, before Saturday’s fishing day, all entries in the tournament must attend a Fishing Clinic taught by the Dock Master of C-Quarters Marina, Millard Collins. They are instructed how to tie knots, tie on hooks, and overall safety while fishing. After the clinic, each receives a rod and reel, a tee-shirt, hat, and bait. FishFloridatag.org furnishes rod and reels.
There are nine categories of fish with three places in each category. There will be trophies awarded for each category. On Saturday morning, the kids can fish from docks or, if they can go out on a boat, they are allowed to fish the Carrabelle River up to Dog Island. There will be a weighmaster available all day.
Lunch will be provided to the kids (Hot dogs, baked beans, chips, and cokes) while the officials determine the tournament winners.
All participants must be registered before the tournament.
